There is an old saying; if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. That’s sort of the way I feel about the Baja-everything movement. Sure, it started with Beetles back in the day, but then they started putting big wheels and lift kits on Firebirds, BMW Z3s, Miatas, Crown Victorias…where does it end? Let the apocalypse commence, I’ll be ready. Maybe with a W126 S-class? Find this 1982 Mercedes-Benz 300SD W126 offered for $4000 in Highland, CA via craigslist.
This next car comes as a tip from Zach Z who writes; Eight (wheels) is great. 17 (horsepower) is more than twice as good, if my math is correct. More than two horsepower per wheel – what trails would you blaze? Find this 1970 ASV Sur-Trek offered for $2500 in the North Pole via craigslist.
We posted a Land Rover Series III the other day that was really just a collection of parts. Commenter Mountainwoodie got it right when he suggested the seller’s spouse had probably said: ”You better get that pile of junk out of the garage or I’m taking the kids and going to my mothers!” At least it was cheap. Anyway, this next Series III Land Mover is assembled and is probably worth the bump up in price. Find this 1981 Land Rover Series III 109 Diesel offered for $15,000 in Blue Island, IL via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
What do you do after you are done going offroading in your convertible Firebird? Why jet skiing, of course…or at least the seller of this next vehicle is willing to trade it for a jet ski, and I’m pretty sure this would drive like a jet ski, off or on road. Find this 1999 Pontiac Firebird offered for $3,500 in South Florida via craigslist. Tip from James.
The 2nd generation Crown Victoria was introduced in 1998 and was available to the public (mostly old dudes) through the 2007 model year. From 2008 to 2011 the Crown Vic was only sold for fleet/rental use and was the police car of choice for many precincts. This made spotting smokey and dropping to the legal […]
You might have never heard of the Infiniti QX4 before today…well…because it is an oddball luxury SUV from Nissan’s luxury brand sold from 1997-2003. You can barely throw a timing belt without hitting a Nissan Pathfinder around these parts, but good luck finding a QX4 — I have to imagine that Infiniti only sold a […]
I hate to contribute to the general panic around the coronavirus…but like the 50th person jumping into a dogpile, I feel only a small pang of regret in my gut. Or is that the coronavirus? Lack of smell and pangs in your gut? I gotta google this. Hang on….nope, I’m good. Anyway, if you are […]
The 2nd generation Samurai is a compact off-roader from Suzuki, built from 1981-1998. The Samurai makes a miserable ride on tarmac, but is legendary for its off-road capability, with one beating a Jeep record for highest altitude achieved for a 4-wheeled vehicle at 21,942 ft. We think the Samurai is a logical choice for someone […]
If you are going to drive off road, there are a few options available; The first is you can just drive your 87 Pontiac Grand Prix you normally take on the road onto a dirt road and just man-up, but you could also get into something like a light SUV/CUV crossover that gives some more […]
“Hey, what we need is a lifted Miata” — said nobody ever. Actually…this is far more desirable of a car than a Pontiac Aztec, Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, or anything made during the evil Daimler-Chrysler merger era. Anyway, find this 1992 Mazda MX-5 Miata offered for $4999 in Charlotte, NC via craigslist. Tip from Rock On! […]
